Calvin B. Marshall, the American:
[Looking at a picture of MacTaggart]
Is that MacTaggart? Well. he;s a crafty-looking buzzard, all right! No wonder he was able to put one over on Pusey.
If I may say so, Mr. Marshall, I don't think a man need be very quick to leave Mr. Pusey behind.

Excellent scottish comedy film of its genre , much underated.
"The Maggie" represents the best of the gentle scots comedies of the 50s. In my opinion it is a better film than "Whisky Galore" by the same Director. Many of the locations in the film are little changed such as the splendid crinan canal in Argyll, scotland and the island of Islay. Most of the cast are no more but Mr Pusey, the lawyer, played by Hubert Gregg hosts Thanks for the Memory, a show on British Radio 2 for afficianados of music from the 20s-40s. Hubert Gregg is an octogenerian! Of the other cast members Tommy Kearins "the wee boy" may still be alive but I have been unable to trace details. Another film in this favourite format is "Laxdale Hall" filmed at Applecross village, scotland.
